I’ll admit it, I take leadership tips from anyone. If I see a particularly good way of communicating or connecting, I will adopt it as my own. When I saw that Lieutenant John Alan Jones adopted spanking, yes spanking, as a way to train/harass his female subordinates, I thought: hmmmmm, is that effective? I’ve never tried it?!?
But in sad news, Lieutenant John Alan Jones, used to be known as Lieutenant Commander John Alan Jones. As in he lost rank and is now in the brig. Too bad, naval officers with three names starting John and ending in Jones usually have a pretty good go of this navally business.
